Calastone white paper examines ETF processes


Calastone has published an ETF white paper which examines several of the processes that take place across the lifecycle of an ETF, assesses the industry’s state of readiness to tackle change, and looks at how ETF asset servicers need to adapt to surmount these challenges. 

Additionally, the white paper explores the increasingly diverse and complex ETF market and reveals new data from a survey of 104 personnel working within fund issuers, 114 within fund administration and 95 within authorised participants internationally.

Key findings from Calastone’s white paper further reveal a misalignment between the priorities of asset servicers and issuers when looking at the lack of progress around automation:

57.6 per cent of issuers said the creation and redemption process was the most important factor when measuring the success of their ETF fund administration services.

41.4 per cent of issuers said that the creation and redemption process was one of the two areas of ETF servicing most in need of improvement.

However, just 22.8 per cent of asset servicers said enhancing the creation and redemption process was one of their two main business priorities, putting it behind fund accounting, transfer agency, technology and operational support and regulatory compliance and reporting.
